Dear PaleoNetters:

For years, Dr. Joseph Lambert (Department of Chemistry, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, USA) and I have been collaborating in the chemical characterization of plant exudates and more ancient materials. This is a request for solid, natural plant exudates, as well as more ancient materials, such as copal and amber, weighing, at least, 100 mg. Any plant exudate, copal, or amber associated to an anthropological/archeological artifact is also welcomed. We do not make a profit from our research. Please, feel free to contact me before sending any samples. Apologies for any cross-posting. Thank you.
